Please pass this email along to any associates whom you think might be interested. Please let me know if you plan to attend the meeting and your number of invited guests. I want to try and make sure I have the proper amount of food and drinks. The meeting will be in the Executive Classroom (Room 228) of the ISyE main building located at 755 Ferst Drive. This is the same location as most of our previous meetings. Here's a link to a map of the campus and the ISyE Visitor Parking Lot: http://www.isye.gatech.edu/visitors/maps/isye-map.php. There is plenty, but no longer free, parking. We look forward to seeing you there.
